Waived by Bears

Bargas was waived by the Bears on Tuesday, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.

Lands with Chicago

Bargas was signed by the Bears on Sunday, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Bargas spent the last two season with the Vikings, mostly on their practice squad. The 25-year-old will be the third fullback on the Bears' roster, which already has Khari Blasingame and Jake Tonges.

Waived by Vikings

The Vikings waived Bargas on Tuesday, Craig Peters of the Vikings' official site reports.

Analysis: Bargas signed with Minnesota back in May after spending each of the past two seasons on the team's practice squad. The 25-year-old fullback played in just one game last season, logging five snaps on special teams. Bargas will now look to make a roster for another team looking for help at the fullback position.

Returns to Minnesota

Analysis: Bargas will return to Minnesota after spending each of the past two years on the Vikings' practice squad. The converted fullback appeared in one game last season, playing five snaps on special teams.

Returns to practice squad

Bargas has been activated from the practice squad reserve/COVID-19 list.

Analysis: Bargas spent the requisite 10 days on the list but is good to go now. He has played in one game in his career, which was Week 16 of 2020, but he registered no stats.

Placed on Practice Squad COVID list

Bargas was placed on the Reserve Practice Squad/COVID-19 list Monday.

Analysis: Bargas will need to be removed from the list before he can return to Minnesota's practice squad, where he will presumably remain barring an injury to fullback C.J. Ham.

Set to hit waivers

The Vikings waived Bargas on Tuesday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Analysis: Bargas spent his rookie season with the Vikings where he played a minimal role in one game and spent most of the season on the practice squad. With C.J. Ham ahead of Bargas on the depth chart, it was unlikely that Minnesota was going to keep two fullbacks. The 24-year-old fullback could potentially rejoin the Vikings practice squad if he isn't claimed off waivers.

Retained in Minnesota

The Vikings signed Bargas to a reserve/future contract Monday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

Analysis: Bargas signed with the Vikings as an undrafted free agent in May. The North Carolina product failed to make the 53-man roster out of training camp, but he was elevated for gameday once, logging seven snaps on offense. Bargas is simply injury insurance behind C.J. Ham, who has three years remaining on his contract that averages $3.6 million per season.

Back to practice squad

Bargas reverted to the Vikings' practice squad Saturday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: An undrafted rookie out of North Carolina, Bargas made his NFL debut in Friday's 52-33 loss to the Saints because starting fullback C.J. Ham (quadriceps) was inactive. Bargas played seven of 64 snaps on offense but didn't touch the ball.

Elevated from practice squad

Bargas was promoted from the Vikings' practice squad Thursday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Analysis: Bargas has been working with Minnesota's practice squad throughout the season, and he'll now have the opportunity to see his first NFL action Friday against New Orleans. The move comes in response to C.J. Ham's (quadriceps) questionable status for the Christmas Day clash.

Spot secured on practice squad

Bargas was waived by the Vikings on Saturday.

Analysis: Bargas never really pushed incumbent C.J. Ham for the starting fullback role, although the undrafted rookie did ultimately wind up on Minnesota's' practice squad as insurance.
